MSI Goes Fan-Free for AE1941 All-in-One

MSI is putting a lot of cool features into its MSI AE1941 All-in-One PC. However, one of those features is not a fan.

Don't let the "Wind Top" name fool you. The hook on the AE1941 is that it has a fanless thermal design. It also has an Intel Celeron 837 processor, as well as the ability to support Windows 7 or 8. Just know that if you go for the 8, this PC doesn't have any touch features. That's certainly an option, though.

Out of the box, you'll get an 18.5-inch WXGA 1366-by-768 LED panel, with anti-glare and SRS Premium Sound built in. The AiO also has Smart Media Link to put audio and photos on DLNA-enabled devices, as well as Smart Sync for synching things like your Outlook contacts, calendars, and more.

Other features include 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, a 320GB hard drive, a DVD burner, a 1-megapixel webcam and microphone, and a 3-in-1 memory card reader. Of course, there are also plenty of connection options, including mic-in and earphone-out ports, an RJ-45, and four USB 2.0 ports. Everything is packed quite nicely into a white chassis with a crystal-frame design.

MSI has spilled a lot of info about the AE1941, but there are still a few pieces missing from this puzzle. That basically means that for now, you're just going to have to wait to find out more about pricing and availability.
